The Top Ten

1 We encourage self-destructive behaviors

Especially in the ghetto, we encourage self-destruction. Smart guys are know it alls. Professional career guys are saps. Speaking english properly is for nerds. Avoiding drugs is goody-two shoes. Being anti-violence is weak. Respecting women is white knighting and so on. - marmalade_skies

2 We need women but women don't need us.

Many women are choosing to focus on their career and be single. And after some bad experiences from men, many women are beginning to question why they need men in the first place. It's fine for them, but for many men, this is unpalatable. - marmalade_skies

Woman never like that man who just want to play with her, she wants a man who cares - Righteous

We need women's boobs and they need our penises.

If that were the case, I'd be making a living a straight male prostitute. - marmalade_skies

3 Lack an emotional support network

It's okay for women to confide in each other, expose their vulnerability and emotions. But for men, you can't be soft or weak. - marmalade_skies

4 We're falling behind academically

Men are more afflicted by learning disabilities like ADHD and autism. They have lower HS graduation rates and lower college enrollment rates. - marmalade_skies

Inhave both and I get good grades...when I bother to do my work. so maybe you have a piont there - RecklessGreed

5 Dating is much more difficult

Women are pickier. Approaching women in real life is harder (due to our tech based society and possible claims of sexual harassment) and online dating isn't lucrative for most men. - marmalade_skies

Being a woman myself, we are much pickier about men. What they do, their habits, interests, etc... - Catacorn

6 Porn destroyed our initiative with women

Primarily a male market. Why go out and talk to girls when we can get off on high speed porn instead? That instant release is hurting us in the long run. - marmalade_skies

7 Excessive video gaming killed our brain's reward system

Gaming in moderation is fine. But many games are designed to be played for hundreds of hours. Instant feedback in a game stimulates dopamine in a way that real life can't. - marmalade_skies

Technology is probaly ruining my brain in other ways, but I'm proud to say I'm not a gamer. - RecklessGreed

8 Can't cope with a changing definition of masculinity.

Decades ago, being masculine meant a different thing (perhaps being dominant, and tough). But now men need to be on both cylinders. They need to be warriors, but they need to know how to nurture and communicate too. - marmalade_skies

9 Mom's basement virgins

Women living with their parents in their late 20's is almost unheard of, but lots of men do it. - marmalade_skies

10 It's harder to be the breadwinner

The recession hit and many blue collar jobs are gone. It's a big sink to the male pride. - marmalade_skies

The Contenders

11 Lacks of respect to other people
